Changing image resolution?

Thu May 21, 2015 1:41 pm
In Painter, PS and GIMP I have been used to blocking in a large canvas (5,000x5,000) at 72 ppi and then upreszzing to 150 for the details. I thought I'd done this in 2.8 when I first stated evaluating Krita by I can't find anything now to do it. Am I missing it or did I dream it? Today I had to dump my image to GIMP to resize it and then bring it back in to work on it. Seemed to work ok but still...

what did you think it would be called? Where were you looking. Krita does a lot of things, but some things are done a little differently. It would be nice to know what you were expecting to see if there could be a usability improvement for this.

We called it Scale Image to New Size to cater for both Gimp and Photoshop users. Photoshop calls it Image Size, Gimp Scale Image, so we combined both phrases :-)

There it's called canvas resize, isn't it? We have a separate canvas resize that makes the canvas bigger or smaller without scaling the pixels... A kind of shortcut for one particular purpose of the crop tool.

that's correct. That's what I got stuck on. I'll adjust going forward

Thanks again to all for the quick responses. It's such a pleasure to deal with an open and forthcoming team. After a lifetime in software development it still frustrates me no end that there's way too much of the other variety still out there.

i had a problem finding this too.

However perhaps it was because I was so used to PS, and not because it is bad naming decision. ( i guess i'll never know)
